I'm a new user, I've been "playing" with RM for a few days and watched almost all webinars and read tips and such.
I like that it's very powerful and customizable.
I also apologize in advance for spelling and grammar errors, I'm not a native english speaker.
I find myself having a bug with the
I open it, it appears, I can navigate thru the topics immediately if I don't click on the other titles, but as soon as I click on search or index or content then this happens and nothing else appears. I have to close the window, reopen it and try to navigate to the topic I want immediately. This happens every time.
(btw, I've tried searching for how to insert an image on the forum but couldn't find, I hope I'm not breaking rules linking like this... Clicking on it will open it)
Another thing, which I think is enormously important and that I've notice has been raised for a few years already and hasn't been fixed is the problem with geocoding.
Talking for a moment about the fact that standardized places are totally wrong so I'll never be able to use them, and maybe this is related to the geocoding part.
I am european, 100% of my research is I believe not going to go further than 200km from my house.
we use: Town or City/Province/Region/Country (as in, european state)
but RM tries to standardize each of my places to Town or City/Region/Country
This is not acceptable, there may be more than 1 town or city with the same or similar name in one region, but in different provinces. To me the level of a province is much more important than the region.
But nevermind, I can live with that, just need to keep the places written as I want.
Geocoding on the other hand, just doesn't work.
I click on geocode, it asks me if I want to search for them, I say yes and accept the suggestions.
When i go back on the list, click edit on one place, the geocode strings are in red and also the online map doesn't work.
So then I read here that this function doesn't work for those using it with a system different from the us-standard of period and comma (that we, and many others, use inverted from the us).
This seems pretty important to me, that an entire part doesn't work.
Is it being worked on? will we have a fix soon? I've seen this has been reported for a long time, but I believe it's a very important and useful part of rm, that I would love to use.
